Latest Submillimetre astronomy Stories
Nestled among a triplet of young galaxies more than 12.5 billion light-years away is a cosmic powerhouse: a galaxy that is producing stars nearly 1,000 times faster than our own Milky Way.

Scientists at the Universities of Bonn and Cardiff see good times approaching for astrophysicists after hatching a new observational strategy to distill detailed information from galaxies at the edge of the Universe.
Scientists studying the atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan have discovered large patches of trace gases shining brightly near the north and south poles, claims research published Wednesday in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) has chosen a team at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, to build its first Earth science-related CubeSat mission.
General Dynamics-built radio telescope antennas give scientists a microscopic view of the universe that is thousands of light years away. NEWTON, N.C., June 25, 2014
The Herschel Space Observatory has uncovered a weird ring of dusty material while obtaining one of the sharpest scans to date of a huge cloud of gas and dust, called NGC 7538.
Scientists recently upgraded the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) by installing an ultraprecise atomic clock at ALMA’s Array Operations Site, home to the observatory’s supercomputing correlator.
Astronomers using the Smithsonian's Submillimeter Array telescope have imaged the most detailed look yet of stellar nurseries within the Snake nebula.
A team of Japanese astronomers has located evidence of a giant planetary system forming around a young star named HD142527, and their discovery that could change existing theories on how planets form and provide new insights into the formation of a vast array of different planetary systems.
Mauna Kea Observatories -- Hawaii is Earth's connecting point to the rest of the Universe. The summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaii hosts the world's largest astronomical observatory, with telescopes operated by astronomers from eleven countries. The combined light-gathering power of the telescopes on Mauna Kea is fifteen times greater than that of the Palomar telescope in California -- for many years the world's largest -- and sixty times greater than that of the Hubble Space...
